About the CCL
We design software
that enables our collaborators
to easily harness large scale distributed systems
such as clusters, clouds, and grids. We perform fundamental computer science research
that enables new discoveries through computing in fields such as physics, chemistry, bioinformatics, biometrics, and data mining.
service provides online access to geospatial data and computational tools in support of earth sciences. The Effective Energy and Mass Transfer (EEMT) tool allows for computations of energy transfer in the Earth's critical zone, taking into account topography, vegetation, weather, and so forth. To scale these computations up to large clusters, the CCL's Makeflow
and Work Queue
frameworks are employed to construct large scale parallel workflows
at the touch of a button from the OpenTopography website.
